Photoshop for the layering and more postwork.
This image is inspired in one of the most famous frescoes from the Minoan Palace of Knossos, in the island of Crete: "The Bull-Leaping". It depicts a ceremonial game where men as well as women leaped over the body of a bull. The animal was NOT sacrificed at the end of the ceremony. The fresco dates back to the 15th century B.C. Mine is a free interpretation of the event.
A BIG thank you for your generous comments on my renders. You just make me happy in a very difficult period in my life.
